it shouldn't be that much harder to do than any other rwd transmission swap, but the clutch is kind of a pita compared to most cars i've worked on

Ive done the auto - 5 speed swap on me 328CI. To be honest the swap is really easy. I dont remember anything that was a challange to do. I didnt even have a tranny jack, just used the guns
